The 39-year-old porn star dropped out of the Channel 5 reality show minutes before the launch show on Thursday night (16.08.18), and it's said producers had very high hopes for her in the house.

An insider told The Sun Online: "Bosses are truly devastated that Stormy has pulled out at the last minute.

"Ever since the scandal broke between her and Trump they were desperate to sign her and couldn't have been happier when she agreed - knowing it would make the series - so much so they decided to hook the whole series on her.

"The series was billed as being full of people 'caught up in their own media storm' and there is no one who has had a bigger storm than her this year thanks claiming to have slept with the US President."

It's said bosses even considered giving her a £100,000 pay rise at the last minute to keep her on board, and it's claimed they feel they have lost their top star for the series.

The source added: "She really was the biggest name on the billing, some of the other people taking part aren't really considered real celebrities and others are just soap stars.

"Stormy was really going to bring the Storm and now they've been left with just a light wind at best!"
